Current Series Release Notes

18.0.0.0b1-159

New Features

  • Deployers may require custom CA certificates installing on their openstack hosts or service containers. A new variable openstack_host_ca_certificates is added which is a list of certificates that should be copied from the deploy host to the target hosts. Certificates may be selectively deployed by defining the variable either in user_variables.yml or via host/group vars.

Known Issues

  • Ubuntu Cloud Archive (UCA) does not contain Ubuntu Bionic distro packages for Victoria, so only source install/upgrade path (default) will work correctly for Ubuntu 18.04.

Upgrade Notes

  • Variable uca_repo has been removed. Deployers are appreciated to use user_external_repos_list instead if they want to define extra repository Variable uca_apt_repo_url was renamed to apt_repo_url in order to correspond it’s usage as it also affect Debian deployments now.

  • Generation of records for /etc/hosts is now made with blockinfile ansible module. During upgrade you will have records doubled in yours /etc/hosts as we don’t drop previously created records for safety reasons if openstack_host_manage_hosts_file is set to true.

  • Deployments which follows distro path (services are installed from distro packages rather then in virtualenvs) should upgrade Ubuntu 18.04 -> 20.04 before performing OpenStack Ussuri -> Victoria upgrade, since Ubuntu Cloud Archive does not provide Victoria system packages for 18.04.

Other Notes

  • Code which added ‘Acquire::http:No-Cache true’ to the host and container apt preferences when http proxy environment variables were set has been removed. This setting is only required when working around issues introduced by badly configured http proxies. In some cases proxies can improperly cache the apt Releases and Packages files leading to package installation errors. If a deployment is behind a badly configured proxy, the deployer can add the necessary apt config fragment as part of host provisioning. OSA will replicate that config into any containers that are created. This setting can be removed from existing deployments if required by manually deleting the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/00apt-no-cache from all host and containers.
